I love this stew, it reminds me of our favorite Bistro restaurants in London. Cooks in 30 minutes and needs only a very simple green salad and rustic crusty bread to make it a very special meal.

I used a big turkey leg, meat off, but bones thrown in the pot to cook along with, and lardons, as no Canadian bacon here! No problem with the substitutions. I might cut down on the carrot next time, which adds a bit too much sweetness for us. Served with garlis toast made out of some really rustic sourdough. Very earthy lunch!
